“A remarkably beautiful Italian style mansion, turned hotel on Chao Phraya’s eastern bank. The vibe is very much Italianesque from the interiors to the garden figurines. The restaurant serves traditional Thai cuisine and the pool offers views over the river. Truly a peaceful haven from the chaos. ”

Hotel Review

An interesting hotel, originally built by a tax collector as a private home, it was then run as a school before standing empty for several years. It was rescued and restored with love and care about ten years ago, and has been serving as a calm retreat from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok proper. A boat picks you up and drops you off wherever you want to go, so you are never that far from the action. The vibe is familiar and welcoming and it's no wonder that most of the guests we encountered were on their second or third visit- a well kept secret!
